Baby Noah!

Brady's newest playmate made his arrival into the world early this morning! My sweet friend Britni gave birth to Noah Bradley Nicholson at 3:24 this morning after what sounds like a very quick and intense natural birth. I am so proud of her! He weighed in at 6 lbs 8 oz and has the thickest hair I've ever seen on a newborn! It's already down past his ears!

I was so excited to hold him. I haven't held a newborn since Brady was born almost 2 years ago. I was afraid I wouldn't remember how to, but it's amazing how quickly it comes back to you.

I am so excited for their family. Justin is Rob's really good friend from Pharmacy school. He and Britni started dating around the same time that Rob and I got married almost 6 years ago. We have seen them finish school, get engaged, get married, struggle with infertility, and now welcome the most amazing gift ever into their lives! I cried the day Britni told me she was pregnant and I cried again this morning when Rob found the text message on his phone from Justin letting us know he had been born! We didn't even know she had gone into labor!

Congratulations Justin & Britni! Noah is so blessed to have the two of you as parents as well as to be part of both of your amazing families!
